> Hi folks,
> I am running two Windows and three Linux BF2 Demo servers.
> I am seeing a weird issue with the Windows servers, where every 3~10 
> minutes all clients in the game get the message "There is a problem with 
> your connection" for about 3 seconds. The Linux servers are identical 
> hardware and on the same network, and do not get this problem.
> If I log into one of the Windows servers with TSC and watch Task Manager 
> while playing, when the clients freeze up I can see the CPU usage on the 
> server drops to 0% for the duration of the freeze, then jumps back to 
> where it was. It's clearly not a network issue as I can see the task 
> manager graph updating while it happens.
> I have tried running BF2 as a regular application in a terminal session 
> and also as a service using Firedaemon. Same story both ways. The 
> windows boxes are running Windows 2000 Server SP4.
> I've run other games on these boxes before and not had any problems, so 
> I can only assume it's something wrong with BF2. Has anybody else seen 
> this - any ideas?
